HUNTERSVILLE — The town Planning Board here on Tuesday is scheduled to consider a request by Bowman Development Group to slightly increase the density of Phase 4 of the $100 million Vermillion mixed-use development.
The Huntersville-based development company, owned by Nate Bowman, wants to convert three single-family detached-home lots measuring 60 feet across to five single-family detached-home lots that would be 30 feet across; and to build up to 54 duplexes on 27 lots now designated for only town houses, according to Huntersville town planning records. Under the revised plan, either town houses or duplexes — or a combination of both — could be built on the town-house lots, the records say.
The proposal would allow Bowman to increase the dwelling units in the 88.85-acre Phase 4 from 235 to 267, the records say. Vermillion is a 400-acre development that has more than 500 completed single-family homes, with more than 800 additional such homes expected. Future plans include a 600-unit apartment building. The development already has a town square with retail space. The development was originally approved by the town in 1999 to have 2,200 total dwelling units; it is now targeted to have closer to 1,470, according to the planning records.
The request, which was approved by the town Planning Department staff, will go before the Planning Board at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. A final vote by the Huntersville town Board of Commissioners is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. April 1. Both meetings will be at Town Hall, 101 Huntersville-Concord Road.
